The beautiful and charming Luca met us in front of the drug store in town and walked us up the hill to his family Villa. He came all the way from Milan to meet us and really looks like the iconic, fashionable Italian man. The villa is indeed better than the photos and you cannot believe vistas as the home is perched on the edge of the Vernazza cliff. When I sat on the deck of this home, which is featured in every local post card by the way, I know I was the envy of every tourist in Cinque Terra. The place was beautiful, spotlessly clean and filled with 16th and 17h century art and furniture. Luca said it was built by his grandfather as a family summer vacation home. We decided to spend a night in and cooked pasta (squid ink kind) in the kitchen and I swear I could smell a little garlic in the cupboards. It made me think of all of the summers this Italian family spent at their vacation home and how my family was getting to have a similar experience. It was magic at their table with wine and family conversation! We loved to watch the sun set and the sun rise over the sea.

Also, all the bedrooms were super cute and everyone felt like they got a great spot. The bathrooms are all updated and gorgeous and where it counts Luca has modernized the place for comfort. Good matress, nice sheets, great water pressure etc.

I would not recommend for families who have wild kids who would not respect the beautiful objects in the home. It is not the kind of place where you jump on the bed and play catch indoors. For my kids 13 and 18, they loved the beauty of the Villa and the experience in Cinque Terra was their favorite of the trip (over Florence, Rome and Pizza). Besides Luca's place take them to the Blue marlin bar for fun music and off course walk around all the towns and up into the terraced farm areas and ancient cemeteries if you can.

Perfect stay at Il Conventino delle 5 Terre

  • 5 of 5

Perfectto. That is how we describe out stay at Il Conventino delle 5 Terre. Luca was wonderful and met us at the train station and escorted us there. It was everything described and more. Beautiful views. Convenient to both the town of Vernazza and the hiking trail among the Cinque Terre, we could not have asked for a better place. Luca was prompted in responding to our questions and requests. We will return.

Excellent

The Villa was awesome. We were travelling with 8 adults and the accommodations worked perfectly. The view was stunning and the location was great. Luca was an exceptional host. Responded to emails promptly and met us at the train station when we arrived. Would definitely recommend!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. The location is perfect and the view can't be beat. Luca, the owner is great. He was so helpful during the planning of our trip, all the way through our departure. He even bought us some juice, milk and fruit for our stay. It was so welcoming and a nice touch. After a long train ride to the location, the fresh fruit hit the spot! If you have the chance to book this location, I would do it! Thank you Luca for everything! You made the end of our trip unforgettable!

Wonderful Villa With Incredible Views

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful and unique villa with incredible views. Comfortable, bright and well furnished. Elderly renters should no that it is a bit of a steep walk to get up to the villa...but worth every step. Luca was wonderful to work with. The only reason we didn't rate this property a 5 star was because the family before us used up all of Luca's alloted internet time so the wifi didn't work. Would highly recommmend.

Amazing views of the Mediterranean

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying in Il Coventino. The property was in an incredible location with amazing views of the Mediterranean and the charming village of Vernazza. The villa was just as it was described. It was very clean and well equipped. Luca made the reservation process very easy. He was very helpful and responsive to my emails. He personally met us at the train station and walked us up to the property and showed us around town. He made us feel as if we were staying at the home of a friend. We would definitely stay at Il Coventino again.
